Thanks to an extensive feature set, including full-bandwidth Dirac Live for in-depth calibration, Onkyo’s TX-RZ50 receiver offers impressive value for money. Even better, it backs this up with a gutsy, immersive performance that wrings every last detail from Dolby Atmos and DTS:X movie soundtracks. Ample power from its nine-channel Dynamic Audio Amplification output stage ensures a dynamic, bass-rich presentation, while 11-channel processing allows for system expansion. Music playback isn’t ignored either: two-way Bluetooth and a DAB+ tuner join forces with Apple AirPlay 2, Chromecast and DTS Play-Fi multiroom to cover all bases. Rounding out a complete package is Onkyo’s slick Controller app, plus an app option for Dirac, which makes operation a breeze.
